Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy
Cruises from Rome (Civitavecchia) depart year-round.
On Italy’s Lazio coast, a 16th-century fortress welcomes cruisers to Civitavecchia, Rome’s main port. This stunning Mediterranean village is 50 miles northwest of the capital city. Rome’s influence on art, intellect, politics and religion helped shape the Western world, and much from its storied past still can be seen today. Can’t-miss tour destinations include Vatican City’s Sistine Chapel, featuring frescoes painted by Michelangelo; the Roman Forum ruins, home to impressive temples from the ancient metropolis; and the Colosseum, built in A.D. 80 as an amphitheater for gladiator battles and war games. As you stroll cobblestone streets with a slice of authentic pizza or a cone of creamy gelato, make sure to pose for a photo at the Spanish Steps and toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain to ensure your return to the Eternal City. Culinary tours venture to vineyards and groves for wine sips and olive oil dips.
